Family Planning: Empowering Families for a Bright Future
Welcome to our Family Planning page, a resource dedicated to helping families make informed decisions and achieve their goals for a brighter future. We understand that family planning involves a range of important topics and concerns, and we're here to provide guidance and support in the following areas:
Birth Advocacy: We are strong advocates for maternal health and well-being. It's a fact that the maternal mortality rate among Black women is 2.6 times higher than the rate for white women, irrespective of income or education levels. Our commitment is to raise awareness about this issue and work towards reducing this disparity. We believe that every mother and child deserves the best possible care and support during pregnancy and childbirth.
Relationship/Marriage Counseling: Healthy relationships are the foundation of strong families. We offer relationship and marriage counseling to help couples navigate challenges, strengthen their bonds, and build lasting, loving relationships. Our experienced counselors provide a safe and supportive space for open and honest communication, enabling couples to work through issues and rediscover the joy in their relationships.
STD Awareness: Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) are a significant health concern. We provide comprehensive information and resources to raise awareness about STDs, their prevention, and the importance of regular testing. Understanding the risks, practicing safe sex, and getting tested are crucial steps in protecting your health and the health of your family.
Navigating the Public School System: Navigating the public school system can be a daunting task for many families. We offer guidance and support to parents and caregivers in understanding the educational system, making informed decisions about their children's education, and ensuring that every child has access to quality education. We believe that every child deserves a chance to thrive in a supportive and inclusive educational environment.
